Part One: Peaceful Zen Oasis Remodel in Dallas

Updated: Jul 9, 2020

I'm finishing up a year-long remodel and, boy, she is a stunner. What a labor of love this project has been! Y'all, I mean that in so many ways. This was my first outdoor remodel and boy was that exciting (and exhausting!).

My clients are located in Dallas and let me fully embrace my creative vision. They wanted me to go outside the box. And did we ever. Almost every inch of this massive backyard has been converted and transformed into a peaceful Zen garden. There are so many areas to relax, swim, play some bocce, fire up the state-of-the-art grill, socialize, be soothed by the water and fire features, curl up and read a book, and soak up some sunshine.

There were plenty of bumps along the way. I am happy to say we are almost done! Stop by the project with me and take a look for yourself in the videos below. This is one remodel that you won't believe the "before" pictures! Talk about an amazing transformation!

So thankful for my amazing clients who have been incredibly patient with all of the rain delays. So. Many. Days. Of. Rain. And my amazing crew: We literally spent all weekend working in the rain, getting this beauty ready.

Shoutout to Christy Keime, who is a rock star! Not only has she created whitewashed patios on this project, she also installed the beautiful wallpaper install on the custom entertainment system. Christy also helped build out inside and jumped in to help out on the pergola painting, hauling trash, furniture pick up, and hanging stuff! She is truly a Jill-of-all-trades (and punny for days).

For the final stages of the project, metal art is being created by a Dallas artist or the feature wall; additionally, LED back-lit panels are being installed on the fence, a custom bench is being fabricated, we're scouting gardening pots and final landscaping, and the sunrooms are being staged. Exciting times!

I see the finish line in site and boy, am I proud of this project! Stay tuned for final details (I can hardly wait to share them all)! Special thanks to my videographer, Ifayemi Edwards-Codrington for his beautiful work. Check out the second video below of the project to date!

Much love,
